Are these Cosmos seedlings leggy?

Posted: 11/04/2016 at 18:52

They are very forgiving, whip them out of pots, put a little bit of compost in the pot,  curl them round until they are up to the seed leaves, then trickle the compost over until the pots full, it does work fine, I do it with lots of seeds. 

Have you got yours yet?

Haven't posted anywhere else V. Not good.x 

Why won't eastern Euopeans be able to apply for jobs here, they always did, or is that something the EU will put a stop too?

Did anyone see that programme the other week, about those ships, one mile long almost. No crew, just 12 workers, all managed by computers, he said that you can send goods from Shanghai to London cheaper than from your local Spar shop to your house, and that is cheaper and cleaner than smelly fumey Lorries driving across Europe, taking the tunnel then driving through UK.

I can't join the debate, I couldn't win an argument in an empty room, but I have just got a leaflet, it will compost, if it disolves in water it'll go on there.

Its all a load of read between the lines, could, maybe, might, and so on.

As for people not being able to work in Germany or France, why ever not, they did before we entered and if someone can do the job, there's no reason why they can't go abroad and do it. My ex husband worked in Germany, and my friend came from Germany to do nursing.

looking around here, almost all the farmers want to come out, and they are the ones that get money given, apart from Ambrosia rice and Ginsters pasties, that's all we have and if they want to come out, I would be driven by that.

still, my son in law mines the clay that makes the glossy paper, so hopefully his company have done well out of the leaflet.

 

I.D Please :)

I don't think it's a blueberry, nothing like my three.

I lightly prune my Hebes, I think the bulb could be an Allium. That's aquilegia in with it.
And the last is dead. May as well pull it out.
Behind the hebe is a delphinium.

Darn frost

I'm only growing runners and parsnips this year, turning over my biggest veg bed to a Salvia Veridiun bed.

i do have a gooseberry plant that Dove kindly gave me, two different raspberries and rhubarb as well, love the fruit.

I didn't understand what you meant in the OP, with all the messing about with ear phones or something. Just put one bean in each pot of compost. Not four.

sow at the end of April or beginning of May, for planting out in June.
